Hi,

Anyone have any idea what Celestion G12's in good condition are worth these
days, the cones are stamped H1777 - Basically the Blue before it became blue
without the Bell type magnet cover!

I assume we're not talking about the actual Vox labeled CT3757, right?

We're talking the standard Celestion-labeled G12 alnico? T731? T650?

The celestion-labeled T731 was used in some of the Selmer amps, so there would be that market for them. I'm not sure what amps used the T650 (or any of the other G12 alnicos variants). Maybe some Marshalls, but those were labeled Marshall, I think. So, unless they're labeled Vox or Marshall, the value would likely be more as a great speaker rather than a restoration item that people would pay through the nose for. Don't ask me how much I paid for a matched pair of Vox CT3757's. It was obscene.

In really great condition, I'd guess around $300 per speaker, maybe a little more for the T731 because you might get a Selmer owner desparate for it.

Hi,
Two of these speakers are Model T562 which according to various sites I've looked at
are the type used in a Marshall cab, these have H1777 cones and and according to
the sites I have looked at are the equivalent of the T530 Blues without the bell magnet covers.

The other one is a B024 which marks it as an aluminium wound voice coil which according to
Jim's book is they type used in the early AC30's My friend's 1959 TV front AC30 has two of these speakers in.
